So have been in Beijing for almost a week now with odd trip out to other cities.
I went to see my new apartment yesterday and its totally amazing is the only way that I can describe it.
Not only do we get an apartment, we get to use the clubhouse and all the facilities there: swimming, gym, tennis, saunas etc......totally brilliant.
Next stop was the local Supermarket which sold loads of English stuff as well which at the moment i'm not missing but in a months time maybe marmite toast will be needed at some point and robinsons squash to quench the thirst.
Popped in to the Giant cycle shop to view some bikes and ended up purchasing one as they were so cheap and cheerful and good quality....I may be shipping this little treat home. The helmets however cost more than the bike.
Last night we went out without any of our carers and used some very basic chinese:
ni hao tsingtao xie xie........hello beer thank you.
As you can see i forgot please but the bar man understood the main components of what i was trying to say.
Well wont be posting until Monday now so lets see what treats the weekend brings....I would say city, massage, shopping, food and football and probably in that order as well.
